Troye Sivan meets his Madame Tussauds waxwork for the first time

Two Troyes is better than one.

Chart hits and awards are all well and good, but sometimes you need a life-size wax replica of yourself to know you've really 'made' it, ya know?

Well, consider Troye Sivan's position as one of the world's most influential LGBTQ musicians cemented (or set, perhaps), because the 25-year-old now officially boasts his own Madame Tussauds waxwork in the iconic franchise's Sydney museum.

Troye's waxwork has been on display at Madame Yussauds Sydney since December, but the 'Bloom' singer used his visit to the city for Mardi Gras this week to pay the impressively life-like figure a visit for the first time.

"Meeting my Madame Tussauds wax figure was such a surreal, pinch me moment and a true honour", says former Attitude cover star Troye in a statement.

"Thank you to the Madame Tussauds team - the figure is absolutely amazing – I can’t get over how life-like it is, I love it!"

Troye previously donated an outfit from his 2018 music video for 'My! My! My!' - a white singlet, cuffed black shirt and trousers - for the waxwork, which also sports a silver nose ring, black boots, gold Cartier-style ring and an engraved silver signet ring.

Richard Dilly, General Manager at Madame Tussauds Sydney, said: "As well as being a singing, song-writing, superstar, Troye is a role model and inspiration to the LGBTQI+ communities around the world and we are so honoured that Troye came to meet his Madame Tussauds figure during the Sydney Mardi Gras.

"Troye has a huge local fan base and it has been amazing to see how excited they are when they meet his figure for the first time, but no reaction will be as memorable as Troye meeting Troye with his family by his side, it was beautiful."

As well as taking selfies at Madam Tussauds, Troye used his trip to Sydney this week to march in the city's Mardi Gras parade at Sydney Cricket Ground.
